Document Responsibility: Offshore Structures Standards Committee 74-SAMSS-001 Issue Date: 23 May 2011 Pantograph Cables for Marine Loading Arms Next Planned Update: 26 July 2014 - Testing and Inspection Requirements

Scope This specification covers the testing procedure and requirements for Marine Loading Arms Pantograph Cables. Pantograph Cables are also referred to as Outboard Cables; which are different from Drive Cables. The Pantograph Cables shall be manufactured using wire rope, with crimped button connections; refer to the Anatomy of a Pantograph Cable drawing in Section 6. This specification covers both galvanized and non-galvanized cables varying in sizes from 7/8 inch to 1-3/4 inch nominal diameters as listed in Table 1. Cable sizes that are not listed in Table 1 may be used after obtaining approval from the RSA assigned to Class 74, Loading Arm Spare Parts.

Conflicts and Deviations 2.1 Any conflicts between this Specification and other applicable Saudi Aramco Materials System Specifications (SAMSSs), Standard Drawings (SASDs), or industry standards, codes, and forms shall be resolved in writing by the Company or Buyer Representative through the Manager, Consulting Services Department of Saudi Aramco, Dhahran. Direct all requests to deviate from this specification in writing to the Company or Buyer Representative, who shall follow internal company procedure SAEP-302 and forward such requests to the Manager, Consulting Services Department of Saudi Aramco, Dhahran.

Quality Requirements 4.1 Quality Program The vendor shall implement and maintain a defined and documented quality program based on ISO 9000 or equivalent. The quality program documents and records shall be made available to the buyer's representative for review and audit. 4.2 Inspection Requirements The items manufactured to this specification are subject to verification by the buyer's inspection representative per Saudi Aramco Inspection Requirements Form 175-740100, attached to the purchase order. 4.3 Testing Procedure Complete cable assemblies shall be tested as detailed below: 1. Proof/Elongation Test A Proof/Elongation tension load test shall be made on the complete cable assemblies to check the integrity of the button-to-cable connection, end connections, and determine the final length of the cable after being subjected to the test load. The Proof/Elongation load shall be 50% of the minimum breaking strength of the cable as specified in Table 1.

The Proof failure criterion, with regard to button or end connection, is a movement of more than 0.1 mm, relative to the cable. Elongation tests shall be made on both sides of the button of each cable. End connections shall be held by their threads. Shims (washers), as shown on drawing in Section 6 must be used to protect button edges from damage during elongation and load tests. The length between button and end connections shall be measured at 10% of the breaking strength load after the elongation test, and included in the certification documentation. The final length after the Proof/Elongation test shall be recorded and included in the certification documentation.

2.

Break Test A representative sample of wire rope, from which the cables are made, for each cable size, and for each Purchase Order shall be tested to failure in accordance with the requirements shown in Table 1 and the procedure in API SPEC 9A or equivalent standard. Table 1

Commentary 7.1 Safety Factors The minimum breaking strength of the wire rope has been selected based on a factor of safety of 5 applied to the maximum static working load the pantograph cable will be subjected to; no wind or other dynamic amplifications have been included. For the smaller wire rope diameters the strength of the Extra Extra Improved Plow Steel IWRC values from API SPEC 9A were adopted. Other structural components in the Marine Loading Arm have different safety factors, in accordance with OCIMF guidelines. 7.2 Part Numbers Table 2 includes a partial list of Stock and Part numbers associated with various cable sizes. This is for reference only. Updates of this list will be made periodically. Table 2
